I'm afraid your chances of getting work are almost nil, because there is about 40% unemployment here, and any jobs will get taken by people who know the ropes, and especially those who can speak Spanish. Places to stay are easy. Just Google long term rental property Lanzarote and you'll find some. There is an English language magazine here the Gazette, Google that, and find its on-line forum where there is a lot of discussion about employment.

If you come, you really need to bring the money to fund yourselves for sevearl months, and to get back to UK if it doesn't work. Since you won't have paid into Spanish Social Security, you will not be entitiled to any state support here. The usual advice has always been that it is very hard to arrange a Lanzarote job from UK, you have to come here and do the rounds, but I'm afraid you are in for a tough time if you do in the present climate. Please do some Googling as I said earlier, so you can see for yourself the despair some people are feeling.

It is probably best to be on the island when looking for a job,and be prepared to call into bars on a regular basis as you never know a member of staff may have left just as you turn up.
